Koiwai Farm, Shizukuishi-cho

Architectural Building · Farm
Set in an idyllic green valley of 3,000 hectares (7,400 acres), Koiwai Farm rests at the base of Mt. Iwate. Get in touch with nature through a variety of activities: milk a cow, ride a horse, hike through the scenic valley, or visit the astronomical observatory. You can sample fresh milk and eggs--and don't miss the real delicacy here, a fluffy omelet with rice. Learn how to craft wool and produce homemade butter. Admire the solitary cherry tree, planted 100 years ago to provide shade for farmers and cows on the farm. Before you leave, pick up some of the farm's delicious dairy products, famous all over Japan for their full flavor. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Shizukuishi-cho trip simple and quick.

  • We were here on 1st of 2019 , its all covered with snow with very little activities , in the evening there are lights up ( illumination) which looks very beautiful specially the train which looks like a wedding train in the lights . We had a warm cup of fresh milk and enjoyed the evening at the most .
  • it is a good place for families to enjoy country life.
  • It is an amazing farm with lots of fun activities. The parking lot is big and free. The admission fee is reasonable. You need to pay each activity separately inside. There is no free pass. Comparing the the other similar farms it is not too big, you can walk around with your kids easily. There are restaurants (pizza, bbq, etc), shopping areas for souvenirs and fresh products like milk, yogurt, soft cream and many more. Soft cream is definitely recommended. Very tasty. Fresh milk is must try one. We couldn’t see cows since they very in a different place but we had a chance to watch a dog and sheeps show. Pony ride, craft activities, archery, mirror maze, horse car, water activities are great options. There are guided tours. Better to check the times at the entrance.
  • We love this place very much, they have a big playground for children and some facilities for family to spend a half day. The cow cottage is worth visiting and don't forget to buy a bottle of fresh milk and ice-cream, you will never forget the fresh taste!
  • awsome, it was really awsome
